GMS desperate for return of fans

26th April 2021

Gary Mackay-Steven admits he’s desperate to play in front of a packed Tynecastle Park.

The forward turned in a man of the match performance in Saturday’s 3-0 win over Inverness Caledonian Thistle, bagging his first strikes in maroon shirt in the process.

He’s already looking forward to next year’s Premiership campaign and hopes fans will return to stadiums because they can help drive the team on to play attractive football.

"It's horrible playing with no fans,” he said. “They give you an extra boost and I know here at Tynecastle it's hard to beat.

“We're desperate for that. That would be a massive boost. You play to get them off their seats and I am desperate for that to happen.

"We want to play football the right way. We have a lot of players who can get the ball down and play attractive football.

“Going forward with the fans here that will add another dimension that will help the team.

“Going forward, there are exciting times at this club.”
